SANTIAGO.- After Chile confirmed that it has been negotiating the purchase of F-16 planes from the Netherlands, Peruvian congressman Juvenal Ordóñez (who also belongs to Foreign Affairs Department of Peru) has said that he will ask the United States government to prevent the transaction from being completed.
